January 5, 2007I was lookin at the ATS arc flow intake, because its already tapped for water/meth, propane, etc..or the banks High ram. An there is another company that makes a carbon fiber one, but cant remember the name. Should I or is the stock one good enough?

January 6, 2007I've heard alot of good about ats manifolds...intake and exhaust...
January 6, 2007the stock one is fine, if you ever run water/meth just drill and tap it. id worry about a intercooler long before a intake horn. .
January 16, 2007i would go with the ATS, you will pay a little more, but it already has taps for everything in it.
February 14, 2007CFM+ is who makes the "carbon" intake, but when I asked them about a port for my boost they said they shy away from putting one in because people who would run nitrous or meth.
February 16, 2007How about a Swanker Intake?
February 18, 2007Hmm..he offers a discount if you get it in pink...I just might do that...
February 26, 2007If your not after heavy mods (I've got Edge, AFE, exhaust) here's what CFM+ had to say.......
I understand and realize the benefits of your intake in regards to air flow preformance, however I would like to know what preformance benefits it provides once the air leaves the intake. i.e. mileage, egt's, hp/torque, etc. Also, my boost is currently tapped into the stock intake and I've been told CFM+ doesn't recomend tapping thier intake. Where do you recomend I get my boost reading from. Thank You.
HP=AIR+FUEL so by increasing the air to the motor alone you are not going to necessarily add HP unless you add more fuel with the air or you are currently over fueling (blowing black smoke).
We donâ€™t do dyno numbers because they can so easily be faked. So what are the facts and the best way to compare manifolds? The answer is the precision flow bench and thatâ€™s why they were invented, to compare the effects of individual components within a complex system. Comparing the CFM+ to all the others with the exact same parameters demonstrated that the CFM+ flows 44% more than stock, 20% more than Banks and 15% more than ATS.
The CFM+ will also give you lower EGTs. There are two reasons for this.
1) The other manifolds have lower flow due to less efficient designs. These losses in efficiency are mostly friction losses which are flow losses to heat.
2) The other reason is that the high temp engineering composite used for the CFM+ has a rate of heat transfer through it 900 times less than cast aluminum which all the other manifolds are made of. This is a scientifically measured property of each material. Less under the hood heat migrates back into your air flow which also means higher density air flow.
So what are the scientific facts: The CFM+ Flows more Cooler air than any other manifold and will do more for your Diesel than all the others and that is why we call it, â€śThe Ultimate Intake Manifold for the Cummins Diesel".
Also there is a boss on the back of the CFM+ that is ready to be drilled and tapped for your boost gage.
